Dean Harris Jewelry for Target

Dean Harris for Target
Green Quartz, Amethyst and Citrine Charm Necklace in Sterling Silver $44.99; Sterling Silver and Quartz Marquis Vine Earrings in Green $49.99

Accessories designer Dean Harris is set to launch a limited-edition jewelry collection for Target, which will be available at most stores nationwide and at August 17 through December 26, 2008.

While I'm not blown away, I can see myself wearing a lot of these pieces and reaching for them on those mornings when I want something simple and understated...which is quite often these days, especially when it comes to jewelry. Perhaps my style pendulum is swinging away from bling for the summer, despite the recent popularity of statement necklaces and other bold baubles. Bah. Who am I kidding? I love all shiny things! It just depends on my mood and the occasion. And that's why every woman needs lots of jewelry at her disposal, naturally. What do you think?

See the complete collection after the jump.

From the Target pressroom: "The Dean Harris for Target collection is reminiscent of nature, fusing organic shapes and designs to create feminine and delicate adornments. Materials range from sterling silver to semi-precious stones, shells and real pearls. Styles include a peace sign cuff, ring and charm bracelet, thin chain necklaces with pebbles, and 18k gold plated drop leaf earrings. The exclusive Dean Harris for Target collection ranges in price from $19.99 to $99.99, with a special holiday-edition piece priced at $249.99."

"Dean Harris currently lives and works in New York. This self-taught jewelry designer has been sculpting pieces since 1999 and he constantly works with diverse materials ranging from 18K gold, African woods, opals and diamonds. In 2000, Dean Harris was bestowed the Perry Ellis Award for best new accessory designer. His jewelry has accessorized the runway collections of Bill Blass and Marc Jacobs and is currently sold at Barneys New York and other fine retailers nationwide."

Eeeee! This is the first Target-designer collaboration that I've been REALLY excited about. I love organic shapes in jewelry, and so many of these pieces would fit right in with my style. Hurrah for Dean! (Minus the peace signs, that is.)
